I was asked to review the Luvs new coming-in-September Ultra LeakGaurd Night diapers. Since my one year old son’s favorite beverage in the early hours of a.m. is a tall bottle of milk, it goes without saying that what goes in, must come out. In his case, it most surely does come out, a task not for the faint of heart when it comes to diapers. Often by morning, there are damp spots where the diaper has failed its duty, especially if he is laying on his side or belly.
Usually, my diaper of choice for him as a boy, is the Huggies Little Movers. That said, I am not a diaper snob, so basically, whatever is cheap is what goes on his bum. The Huggies he wears generally come from the local discount grocery. If I happen to be shopping at Wal-Mart when I need diapers, Luvs is the diaper that fits the budget. So we wear both brands on a regular basis around here.
I was curious to see how the Luvs overnight diapers held up in comparison to the (quite-leaky-overnight) regular Luvs, and their more expensive (but not as leaky) counterpart, Huggies, especially under an onslaught of the revenge of the midnight bottle.
Luvs Nightlock claim to offer the ultimate in overnight protection for baby, with the largest absorbency area ever, locking away more wetness than Huggies Snug and Dry. (altho, with a boy, we all know there is only ONE area that needs to be absorbent.)
In appearance, the overnight Luvs looked about the same as regular Luvs, although they boast of leak barrier elastic in the leg openings. By morning though, they were totally living up to the claims of their manufacturer. Where once would have been a soggy, yellow, busting-at-the-seams, damp-to-the-touch Luvs diaper, one could clearly see that the overnight diaper had the moisture under control, locked away with room to spare. No spillage on mommy’s clean sheets, I was impressed.
So in retrospect, these diapers do seem to hold more than the normal Luvs, but probably Huggies are still a close rival. And why buy two packs of diapers, (overnight and daytime), when you can buy just one that will meet the demands of both? If I was an exclusive user of Luvs, I would probably consider the overnight diapers, especially since the regular ones don’t always stand up to everything my son throws at them, at night. I did enjoy seeing what a difference a night-time diaper makes, and I did love not having damp spots next to me when I awoke in the morning.
